In the recent article , a theory for complexity-constrained interpolation of contractive functions is developed. In particular, it is shown that any such interpolant may be obtained as the unique minimizer of a (convex) weighted entropy gain. In this technical note we study this optimization problem in detail and describe how the minimizer depends on weight selection and on interpolation conditions. We first show that, if, for a sequence of interpolants, the values of the entropy gain of the interpolants converge to the optimum, then the interpolants converge in H-2, but not in H-infinity This result is then used to describe the asymptotic behavior of the interpolant as an interpolation point approaches the boundary of the domain of analyticity. For loop shaping to specifications in control design, it might at first seem natural to place strategically additional interpolation points close to the boundary. However, our results indicate that such a strategy will have little effect on the shape. Another consequence of our results relates to model reduction based on minimum-entropy principles, where one should avoid placing interpolation points too close to the boundary.
